What would you call this style?

Back in 2003 in Buenos Aires, I saw a way of dancing tango that touched my heart. It had (what I think) are the “4 elements of a good dance”: 

  • abrazo/conexión
  • cadencia 
  • musicalidad
  • sinceridad

It was a style that drew you in instead of throwing moves and poses in your face. Here are two examples of it. My friends and I jokingly call it “Estilo Javier y Geraldine 2002 – 2005″…..but what would you call it?  Do you have other examples of couples that dance this style?
